Recall that the criminal gang is accused of killing 17 people, committed in 2012-2014 in Moscow, Moscow and Kaluga regions. Group members, known as GTA gang (the media began to call it so by analogy with a series of games Grand Theft Auto), attacked drivers on suburban routes. Criminals stopped cars, laying out spikes on the road. Then they killed people, who were in the car. It was initially reported that there did not disappear money and valuables of victims, but the investigation claimed that crimes were committed for mercenary motives.
All members of the gang came from Central Asia. The leader of the group Ibaidullo Subhanu (referred to by the name of Rustam Usmanov) was killed during the arrest.
The ICR spokesman Vladimir Markin said to VestiFM radio broadcast that members of the group lived a double life.
"They are, indeed, acted very cleverly ... They lived as ordinary migrant workers with their owners, they had no different, completely submissive, and then, at night, go out and commit their murder like wolves," - said Markin.
It should be noted that the investigation has been questioned the Head of the Administrative Department of the Prosecutor's General Office Alexey Staroverov, in whose house criminals settled. Later, he was fired. His wife Nadezhda Staroverova figured in the investigation of the Anti-corruption foundation on the business of sons of the Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika.
The prosecutors want the former Russian Federation Council member to go to prison for 14 years instead of 9 and pay a 500-million-ruble ($8.8 million) fine instead of 70 million rubles ($1.2 million).
